Burnout and Gas (September 6th, 2023)
August was a rocky ride. I was pushing hard to finalize the release of Season 18 before I ran out of time on the push to distribution (they like having two full weeks before the album goes live). I did make it in time, and the album went live on time, but then I had to deal with the stress of chopping up 100 songs into samples and then make a song using them.
Again, these are great milestones and I'm glad that I was able to succeed at them, but man they were stressful and all bunched together. I got hit with some pretty bad burnout at the end of this month and I'm trying to get back into things again.
Over the long holiday weekend, I was able to get the album for October done! I've been meaning to collect all my orphaned songs into an album named, appropriately, Orphans.
It is currently 73 songs and nearly 4 hours long(!) It will be released for free in a similar vein to Formative where it's more a look behind the curtain at old and unreleased songs. I'll be adding to this album when appropriate.
But with Orphans sorted, I have the rest of the month to prepare for November's release (Season 19) and maybe chip away more at December's release (Cozy). It's good to finally feel a bit ahead for once!
I also sold another USB drive! I only have one left for sale now, so I need to start the process of making more. I am thinking of new designs right now. It'll be fun to get back in the workshed and see what I can come up with using all my new tools and knowledge.
I'm still planning how I want to handle the Patreon and streaming in a post-Two Hour Track Challenge world, but that's still 4 months away, so I'm not fretting too much yet. I do want to keep the Patreon around and make sure that it retains value to you lovelies who support me here though :)
That's all for now! Hopefully this month is a bit more relaxing and I can catch my breath.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I read and respond to all emails. I love getting to know people from all over; show me what you're working on!
